    Default Beginner DJ, Quick question.

    So I've been into music my entire life and recently started to work on djing. Ive purchased a mixtrack pro and I have a new dell on the way. I'm using Traktor LE2, and I was going to upgrade to pro when I received my new laptop. That would cost around 140 or so to do with the code received from NI. However I've found out that right now the KX1 is shipping (or emialed) with Pro 2. So for less than 100 I could get the KX1 (essentially since I am planning on upgrading anyway.)

    Just trying to figure out if this would be a worthwhile investment. I'll be upgrading from the mixtrack when I get better, but I feel like I want to stick with controllers. So is it a good deal for me?

    Alright sweet deal! I thought it to be pretty good myself.

    And yeah, haha. I had an hp with 4gig and it worked fine. I got a great deal on the dell tho. I don't think the extra will hurt.

    what is the KX1? more gear with traktor for less seems like a good deal, im just not familiar with this device.

    edit: nevermind. kontrol X1. duh. i cant believe i didnt put that together.

    I would say the x1 is a good idea. It will be useful in pretty much any setup
